Dani Dyer's boyfriend, Sammy Kimmence, has been sent to prison for three-and-a-half years after pleading guilty to five counts of fraud.

Reports say he was sobbing as the judge sentenced him at Portsmouth Crown Court on Wednesday (14th June).

Who is Sammy Kimmence?

Sammy Kimmence is Dani Dyer's boyfriend and father to their son, Santiago.

The 25-year-old grew up in Essex, as did Dani Dyer. He's a stockbroker and amateur footballer who plays for Barkingside FC.

Kimmence was a senior trader for Equine Global Sports Limited, which would place bets on horse races on their customers' behalf.

Why has he been sent to prison?

Kimmence was sentenced to 42 months in prison at Portsmouth Crown Court for posing as a financial advisor and duping two pensioners into handing over £34,000, said The Mirror. He must serve at least half of that sentence in jail.

When Equine Global Sports went into liquidation, Kimmence contacted two of his customers - Peter Martin, 91, and Peter Haynes, 81 - and told them he'd continue investing in the horse races as he had been doing all along.

But he was really using their money to fund his lavish lifestyle, said The Mirror.

Kimmence spent the money on expensive restaurants, clothes and hotels, while all along Martin and Haynes thought they were making an investment.

"You defrauded two men of significant sums of money, both were elderly gentlemen, neither was a wealthy man," said Judge Timothy Mousley QC.

How long have Sammy Kimmence and Dani Dyer been together?

Dani and Sammy were an item before Dani went on Love Island in 2018, which she won with her partner Jack Fincham.

In 2019, after things fizzled out with Jack, Dani got back together with Sammy, according to The Sun.

They broke up for a brief period in 2020, around the time Sammy first appeared in court on charges of fraud.

A few weeks later, during lockdown, Dani and Sammy got back together and they welcomed their first baby, Santiago, on 23rd January 2021.
